However, several Pokemon GOplayers across the globe have allegedly been catching Ditto, the purple shape-shifting Pokemon, starting Wednesday night.
As this may be good to hear even before the creature surfaces, "Pokemon Go" players may still not leave their own houses to search for the said inclusion to the system. Other than the Pidgey refusing to stay in its PokeBall, there was no indication that it was actually a Ditto in disguise.
You'll get a candy for every 3km you walk with a Ditto buddy.
In recent weeks, fans have seen numerous Pokemon GO updates aimed at making it a generally better experience. So how do you encounter one?
Traveling for the holidays? Weather is a factor
On Friday , some light, wet snow or rain will travel through the Great Lakes into northern NY and northern New England. It could be breezy, though this Thanksgiving with winds of 10 mph to 15 mph out of the west with gusts up to 20 mph.
Ditto can be caught using Incense, so presumably Lures will work as well although that's now unconfirmed.
We've seen numerous instances of these Pokemon transforming into Ditto after being caught, so take this as your big clue and start hunting down those Pokemon now. The post doesn't really tell us anything new, but at least now we know this is the real deal.
Ditto is harder to catch than the Pokemon it transforms into. Sometimes, we don't stick around for the cutscene.
